Question About Bloodwork To Check Hormone Levels

littlebee - January 22

I recently went to the doc b/c my last 3 periods have been way abnormally light and one of them was all brown. I had neg HPTs, and got a neg urine test from the doc. I was examined and told that I am not pregnant, but everything else looks fine otherwise (thank goodness). However, my doc did set me up to get some bloodwork done to check my hormone levels to see if they are out of whack, and I have to go in to get blood drawn on the 2nd day of my next cycle. I always get overwhelmed and can't come up with my questions when I'm at the doctor's office. Anyway, have any of you had this done? What exactly does this mean?

Checking your hormone levels, I am sure they want to check your estrogen levels, possibly check your thyroid and a bunch of other stuff. But estrogen and more importantly thyroid is directly correlated with your reproduction system, so that is a little of what they will check. They probably want to make sure you don't have hypo or hyperthyroidism. One means your thyroid is underactive and the other means it is overactive. Both are not good and it needs to be controlled by meds. If you don't have it hereditary in your fam you should be ok unless you are a sugar junky or are seriously over or underweight. I am sure all the other girls can fill in the blanks where I missed info. Hope this helps a little!!!

My Gyno did the same thing to mean back in July... she said everything was okay with my hormone levels... she just wants to make sure they are balanced.. should be okay...
